How bad does this MRI report look? Biopsy not back yet..
If any radiologists or oncologists by chance are on this site and happen to see this, I'd love your honest feedback... as well as responses from any ladies who have had similar imaging results. In early 2016 I had breast cancer in right breast, had lumpectomy and radiation and 5 years of Tamoxifen (stopped last August due to fatty liver). I get a mammogram and a few months later an MRI each year. In Sept my MRI showed a focus of enhancement and I had to go back in early January for a new MRI to check on it. It was still there and new MRI mentioned "there is persistence of the 6 mm enhancing focus with a type II and II kinetic curve. There is some linear branching enhancement most of which is below threshold. Bi-Rads 4a. Biopsy is suggested." I am terrified it's a new cancer. This is in the opposite breast from the previous cancer. I had the biopsy the other day and the radiologist told me after that it was a 50-50 chance of cancer, but yet it says birads 4a on report, which should mean less than 50% chance. I also spoke to my oncologist as we had a preset phone appointment about further hormone blocking treatment due to stopping Tamoxifen. He said based on my MRI I needed the biopsy and he was being evasive and acting like he thought it's cancer, so I definitely felt awful after that appointment. I am still awaiting results and am an anxiety ridden wreck. I have read so much online and it only makes me feel worse, not reassured. Any input would be appreciated.
